Connect to Authorize.Net Data in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL)

Transfer Authorize.Net data using the visual workflow in the CloverDX data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL) to work with Authorize.Net as sources. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to Authorize.Net as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to Authorize.Net data. In a new CloverDX graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL.

    You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

    • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
    • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
    • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Authorize.Net JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;

Query Authorize.Net Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the Authorize.Net JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT MarketType, TotalCharge FROM SettledBatchList

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the SettledBatchList table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
